Course Creator

Sachin Goyal
Sachin Goyal is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Merced. He has research interests in the areas of continuum mechanics, dynamics and controls with applications to several engineering and biological systems. He started a research program on Biomechanics and Mechanobiology at UC Merced with two ongoing research directions (http://me.ucmerced.edu/research-areas/biomechanics-and-mechano-biology):
  1. Understanding biomechanical symptoms of Parkinson's Disease from the perspective of feedback control theory
  2. Modeling constitutive laws of biological filaments from their atomistic structures
Before launching these research directions, he contributed a nonlinear computational rod model to simulate the mechanics of filament-like structures and has applied it to analyze the biologically relevant deformations of DNA. He received his B.Tech. degree (1997) in Mechanical Engineering from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), India, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees (2006) in Mechanical Engineering and Scientific Computing from the University of Michigan. He also has had an industrial experience at Larson and Toubro Limited, India, has held a postdoctoral research appointments with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and in Biophysics department at Emory University, has served as a faculty in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) at Gandhingar, India and in the Theoretical and Applied Mechanics/ Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department at Cornell University, and has served as a technical adviser to Timetooth Technologies Pvt. Ltd., India.
